450 is the engine series, what is the mower model number? Need to see which way the belt is routed. Typically the belt has to be loosened at the transmission end and then is slipped back into the deck area, to get the belt over the blade and off the drive pulley.

Tip it over on the carburetor side down, best to have empty fuel tank. Remove the blade, remove the cover over the drive axle, to get acess to the front drive pulley. The belt is tightened by spring, so just flip belt off the drive pulley onthe transmission, then work thebelt off theengine crankshaft pulley. Install new belt in opposite is a parts link.------------------
